This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.

More violets.......................

Why? because I have so many more pictures that I want to share.I had my other blog "Bluebell Woods" printed out into a book. I may do that with the other two at some point, but I will have Bluebell printed each year. So I am really putting this stuff out there to keep. When things are on line they tend to get lost with each computer so............this is a good way to record things I want to keep.

Well its a short post but I want to do another one on Historical costumes. So all for now


  1. ooooh how beautiful are these colors, I love them ! I'm very grey and lavender these days...just dyed some cotton crochet trim into grey and sewed them on the hem of my grey pants, so pretty! I have a question, how do you turn your blog into a book pray tell!?? That sounds fascinating, something I may want to do....they would make great gifts don't you think? for those people who truly love you and your blog, I have a handful of those people who would love such a book!

  2. Beautiful post Janice! I have to ask, like Lady of the Woods did, how did you turn your blog into a book? Very cool and did it cost a lot??
    Big Hugs, hope everything is well ;o)
